Discover Birthstones and Crystals to Balance a Libra Star Sign
Acquiring balance is Libras life’s quest; balancing self, balancing others and all situations that arise. These peacemaking folk will often be so busy striving to keep everyone they know in balance that they fall over in a heap, tipping that side of the scale to totally unbalanced. Achieving balance often means the scales are up and down, while en-route to perfect balance. It works like this with Librans, down and up, polite then brash, open then obstinate, happy then miserable. Then, incrementally, balance is established and they are transformed into quiet, sweet and gracious souls.
Librans tend to be composed and contained, but they are capable of turning this state into outbursts if they feel something unjust may have been said. Librans can captivate others with their sharp intellects, allowing them to entertain people for hours, they are equally awesome listeners. Making decisions can certainly be tricky as you need to analyse things carefully in order to make the very best decision which often sees the scales get tipped back and forth in the process. Continual assessment, consideration and evaluation are mentally exhausting… but with all of these experiences come discernment and confidence.
Librans love beauty and can seem superficial as they place emphasis on the visual beauty, however they can also see unseen beauty in those that most of us would not see. Beauty flows through them in creative expressions like music as well as the arts.
